This morning my pastor asked the following question...
Why is it that the very thing we need the most is the very thing we are most afraid of receiving?
The world has deceived us. The American Dream has deceived us. The enemy has deceived us. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life." Some of us spend our lives running. Some of us spend our lives miserable. Some of us spend our lives feeling empty. We overcompensate by taking our buckets to a dry well, dropping them down into the hole, only to have the bucket scrape the bottom of the well and come up without a single drop of water. We continue throughout our lives in a constant state of thirst traveling from one dry well to the other. Jesus said, "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters."
News flash, friend. You need Him. He loves you. Don't be afraid. Come to the well of the Living Water.
